    Case Study:

    WPA

    WPA (Watchpoint Airlines) was a segment explaining the possibilities of certain teams' ability to make the playoffs.  Our senior producer Sean Keagan wanted to wrap the explainer in a airline theme, where talent would act out scenes about a passenger trying to get a ticket for a fully-booked airplane.  I had the task of creating the world through on-air graphics and monitor set extensions.
